Posted in: How To
It's the 7th day of Tower Christmas and today we are bringing you delicious recipes on how to make the perfect roasted ham and cranberry sauce to accompany your Christmas dinner. Roasted Ham Recipe Ingredients 4 ham hock with the rind removed 4 clementines, halved ½ tsp ground allspice ¼ freshly grated nutmeg 2 star anise 3 bay leaves 4 tbsp Dijon mustard 2 tbsp black treacle 6 tbsp soft light brown sugar Method The day before, soak the ham hocks in water overnight in the fridge, to draw out some of the salt. The next day, drain the hocks and pat them dry. Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Mix the allspice, nutmeg and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper together and rub into the hocks. Put them into a deep roasting tin with the clementines, cut-side up . Tuck the star anise and bay around the hocks, and pour in 200ml water. Cover the tin in foil and roast for 3 hours. Remove the tin from the oven and increase the heat to 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4. Unwrap the tin and drain off the liquid. Squeeze the juice from the clementines over the hocks and return the juiced halves to the tin. Mix the Dijon, treacle and sugar in a bowl and paint half the glaze all over the hocks. Return to the oven for 15-20 mins, turning and brushing with the remaining glaze every 5 mins until the hocks are burnished and caramelised in places. Shred or slice the meat and eat warm or cold. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to five days (and make the best sarnies!) Cranberry Sauce recipe Ingredients 100g light soft brown sugar 1 large orange , zested and juiced 250g pack cranberries (fresh or frozen) 1 tbsp ruby port Method Tip all the ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 mins (or a little longer if the berries are frozen). Cool, then chill for up to four days or freeze for two months. Serve at room temperature.
